PROGRAM ASSISTANT’S MESSAGE: AUTUMN DONIVAN
July is Safe Sex For Seniors Month
The need for intimacy is ageless. It can be a powerful emotional experience and a great tool for protecting or improving health. Studies confirm that no matter what your gender, most people can enjoy sex for as long as they wish. Naturally, sex at 70 or 80 may not be like it is at 20 or 30, but in some ways it can be better. As an older adult, you may feel wiser than you were in your earlier years, and know what works best for you when it comes to your sex life. In fact, sharing your life in a fulfilling intimate relationship, which may include a healthy sexual relationship, can have positive effects on virtually every aspect of your life, from physical health to self-esteem.
Consider some of these benefits of sex as you age:
Accept & Celebrate Who You Are: Keep a positive attitude and open mind.
Look ahead and let go of expectations.
Focus on Intimacy & Physical Touch: Be playful. Be honest .
Find What Works for You: Be creative and experiment.
Restart a Stalled Sex Drive: Communicate & just “DO IT.”
Most of all have fun and try new things!
